I have a 16 year old son, and a former therapist recommended UC Health to assist with getting medications for my son. We used Dr Loring for medication management and therapy. He does not return parent phone calls or make any effort to address concerns about your child. If you want to have any kind of active role in your child's treatment or have your calls returned I would not recommend this doctor.

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
After the most harrowing week of our lives with 2 self harm incidences, and our own non-responsive psychiatrist during this entire experience, we landed ourselves in the ER twice with our severe OCD child. Doctor Butterfield was truly a voice of reason in the middle of a week of crisis. He had more sound wisdom, advice, and drug advice than our own negligent psychiatrist. He's an educator and master on human behavior. Read the whole situation extremely well and was the only one to administer calmness and soundness in the middle of our storm. Exceptional professional. Wish we could meet again.

Dr. Scott Schmidt is incredible. Our family's experience with him has been excellent. My son has drastically improved after seeing Scott. Scott is able to really connect with my son and has adjusted his medication. My son is in the best mental place he has ever been - a true miracle! Dr. Schmidt is such a knowledgeable and caring provider - by far the best we have ever seen. I would highly recommend Dr. Schmidt as a psychiatrist to children AND adults!

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
Unfortunately i had a very unpleasant experience with Dr. Butterflied. I found him to be very condescending, unprofessional and blatantly rude. He had his objective long before the due process was completed and refused to assist in getting further assistance for a dis-regulated and unsafe foster child. when I further advocated for the child he then became more unprofessional and took things to a personal level. He literally told me to " bring it on". very poor representation! very disappointed.

Dr. Penner misdiagnosed my child with a psychiatric disorder when in reality she ended up having a severe gastrointestinal disorder. She was very rude when meeting with my child ,and my child now suffers from PTSD from the whole experience with Dr. Penner. I would not recommend taking your child to this provider.

She was my Psychiatrist as an Inpatient at Harris County Psychiatric Center. She was excellent in treating me and she truly listens and has genuine compassion. Most psychiatrist just try to medicate you without finding root cause or alternative solutions, but Dr. Pemberton works with you to resolve issues therapeutically. It is rare to find a MD like her and I would love to see her outpatient if possible.

This lady is a complete Joke.. I had to have an appointment for my 14 year old son to rescheduled because she was sick.. Then she when we finally do se her she refused to talk to my husband she only spent 15 minutes w/ my son. Then had the nerves to tell my husband he is fine and my son doesn't need to see her anymore. My son has some serious mental health issues and this lady is 0 help. I will be filling a complaint against her w/ the ABPN, She is not will to resolve the issues at hand.

We have just begun seeing Dr. Stefaniak, after having been with our previous therapist for 14 years. We found herto be so respectful and refreshing. She addressed my son (19, with autism) directly and he came away with a very good feeling for her. She seemed to focus in immediately on his needs and our concerns. We look forward to a continued relationship with her. She was full at the time I first called her, but she got back to me as soon as she had an opening.

Both of my children have been under the care of Dr. Stefaniak for almost 2 years. My children's needs and issues are quite different. She is very knowledgeable about both of their needs and quite methodical about her approaches to the medications and interventions she recommends. She is wonderful! I would highly and whole-heartedly recommend her to any family because of her wealth of knowledge, professionalism and excellent rapport with families.

My son has been seeing Dr. Stefaniak for about six years. She is understanding, empathic, and patient. She is a mother as well so she understand the parent's struggles well. She is seldom aggressive about meds and provides thorough education about meds. She is also an excellent source of referrals for other resources such as therapists, therapy groups, psychoeducational groups, supplements, etc. She is thorough and gentle. Our family is indebted to her.

Dr. Stefaniak has been seeing our adult son who is in the Autism spectrum. She is very friendly and has helped us to better understand how he deals with difficulties. She has a good rapore with him and he enjoys visiting with her. She works well with the insurance companies; with regard to their finicky RX necessities. He has a therapy dog in her practice and our son enjoys being around the dog and he is more relaxed. I would recommend that anyone looking for a Psychiatrist contact her.

My young son has been seeing Dr.S for the past two years for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and ADHD. She's very knowledgable in her field. She's flexible with appointments and my son has developed a good relationship with her. We like her, trust her and my son is very cooperative with her. This says a lot. He's seen many different therapist in the past and often doesn't develop a great rapport with them as he does this doctor. She's well known and respected in Denver and the surrounding areas.

Ignores her patients and their parents when they speak. Only spends 5 minutes every 6-9 months with patients. Has no compassion. Believes she is God. Doesn't keep proper records of medications. Will prescribe meds that are contraindicated. Then never admit that the medications caused severe side effects and continues to list the medication 6 months after discontinuing. Do Not use this woman!!!

Dr. Stefaniak is very cold and seems extremely superficial. We tried to stick with her for quite some time to see if the sessions would improve. My 16 year old daughter who suffers from depression/anxiety and ADD learned to just say as little as possible to get the session over with quickly. She was very rude when asked to please fax the prescription in, saying she didn't have the support for that. Yet there is a fax number provided when calling. I would not recommend her to anyone.

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
Dr. Stefaniak came highly recommended to us. However, she did not take adequate note when told of our child's increasing agitation and symptoms as she prescribed higher and higher dosages of the recommended drug. She lacked empathy, which was bizarre since she sees so many children. Additionally, we were left with no dependable contact information in her absence during a time when we had critical questions and concerns about dosages.
